    Congratulations to John and Stan for taking the win at the Dick Miller Olds vs. Buick meet at Norwalk yesterday. It was a blazing hot day that left everyone guessing from pass to pass where the numbers would be, no tuning in that thick air. They persevered and came out on top, and it couldn't have been more deserved for two of the greatest guys I am proud to know.

    To be honest, I wasn't looking at the time, just the win light. I believe though it was a 8.17xx(?) on an 8.170 dial. It was a great race!

    Thanks for posting the results Gary, I was a bit off with John's final run, but again, I was just looking for the win light, and really didn't care about the time, John's got a piece of paper for that. While the car count tells us our Buick's were the underdogs, the final result of who took 2 out of 3 at the end of the day remains the bottom line in my opinion.
